A look at probably the most under appreciated item of clothing we own.

The Coat

 

The winter is The Coats time to shine, ironic given the lack of sunshine.

As soon as you put it on, you feel it’s weight and it’s warmth, especially after months of wearing thin jackets and fleeces.

It’s The Coats warmth that makes you feel ready to go out into the cold, it’s The Coat that gets you to your destination without shivering down to the bone.

When you are ready to leave and go home, it is there for you again.

In fact, it is there for you all winter through Christmas, into the new year, through cold Januarys and miserable Februarys, even early spring days.

As soon as the weather picks up, it ends up back in the wardrobe, or at the back of a cupboard collecting dust for three quarters of the year.

The Coat gets forgotten about and neglected for the majority of the year, yet it waits patiently until needed again.

The Coat looks after us when we need it most, the least we can do is return the favour; keep it clean, take it to the dry cleaners, wash it with a cloth, brush it down. Whatever it takes to ensure The Coat is ready for another cold winter.

I think you're right about coats being underappreciated. Of course, some people have too much of everything and can't love something as simple as a coat. Others, though, (Me included) grew up not wealthy, and put great significance on having a good, warm coat to shield them from harsh elements.
